Next qualification window for AM tournament that I participate in is starting in 10 days. Exactly on September 10th best 100 drivers will be competing (in the upcoming 2 weeks) for 50 spots which lead them in next stages of this yearly competition.
The propositions of the tournament say that the minimal weight is 80kg (If bellow-ballast is added, if above-nothing happens). I weight 63kg right now, so I assume I will need about 15-17kg ballast on my kart as I will get some kg back until then.
I heard it doesn´t necessarily need to slow you down, it can actually help your tyres and grip levels overall. Have you got any experience with these kind of situations and have you lost or gained time after adding weight? Would some seat adjustments help as well?
(In case someone did not read my fantastic thread with 200 replies out of which only about 50 relate to it´s original topic )
